Philips Clinical Collaboration Platform supports telehealth and other connectivity initiatives to increase collaboration across hospitals

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced the completion of a regional informatics project that consolidates radiology and nuclear medicine imaging data. The Region of Southern Denmark now has a single system for storing, retrieving, and viewing clinical images across all the locations and specialties in its extensive healthcare system.

The Region of Southern Denmark health service encompasses four hospital groups with a total of 12 hospitals that serve a population of over 1.2 million people living on both on the mainland and the region’s many islands. The unified imaging ecosystem will serve all of the region’s approximately 300 radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists, performing 1.5 million exams yearly. The related images are now accessible to the over 5,000 clinicians in the region.

“Easy access to medical patient data across complex healthcare systems fosters clinical collaboration and is essential to advance precision diagnosis,” said Calum Cunningham, General Manager of Enterprise Diagnostic Informatics at Philips. “We were able to implement our Enterprise Imaging solution in record time, helping the Region of Southern Denmark to move to the next step of digital maturity, improve collaboration, and ultimately enhance patient care.”

“An important requirement was solid integration with the national image registry in Region Sjælland,” said Jørgen Balle Kristensen, Senior IT Project Manager for the Region of Southern Denmark. “The Philips Vendor-Neutral Archive has an open, standards-based design that’s compatible with images in virtually any clinical format, from any source, so it’s a perfect fit for our integration needs.”

The region decided to partner with Philips to advance its digital transformation towards precision diagnosis. The adoption of Philips Enterprise Imaging solutions has started with implementing the Philips Vendor-Neutral Archive (VNA) and Philips Universal Viewer as part of its strategy to replace the existing systems. These modules provide a single source of archiving and distribution of imaging information that enables viewing of clinical images virtually, anytime anywhere by authorized users via a web browser or mobile device.

Philips Enterprise Imaging solutions combine scalable, modular architecture that integrates with existing systems to deliver data and tools across and beyond the enterprise – from radiology data reporting to enterprise-wide ingestion, distribution and archiving, to full patient and clinical data management. It consolidates multiple specialty workstations into a single, multifunctional workspace that allows radiologists to enhance reporting quality.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the leading client engagement app for personal trainers, studios, and clubs, Trainerize is upping the virtual training game with two all-new video features: on-demand video workouts and live 1-on-1 video call appointments.

In the face of gym closures in early 2020, Trainerize moved the fitness industry online, setting up trainers and gyms to train clients and engage members remotely. As the pandemic continues, fitness businesses need to continue to evolve to ensure long-term success, and Trainerize will be there to help make that happen.

With all-new video training features, Trainerize continues to elevate the human connection central to the platform and emphasize their focus on client engagement. Trainers can now provide video training, on-demand classes, and one-on-one video calls within the Trainerize ecosystem.

These new video features offer the most human experience possible, says Trainerize co-founder and Managing Director, Sharad Mohan. “To me, video is the most engaging medium available beyond face-to-face interactions. For us, the relationship between a trainer and their client, and the personalization, accountability, and motivation it enables, is a crucial part of a successful fitness journey.” With these new features, trainers and coaches can provide face-to-face interactions to their clients, safely and conveniently.

On-demand video workouts

With on-demand video workouts, Trainers and studios can transform their clients’ fitness routines by building libraries of video content—accessible by paying clients anytime, anywhere. Perfect for instructor-led workouts or classes, clients get to feel like their trainer is right there with them, whether they’re at the gym or working out in their living room.

For trainers looking to build on-demand, subscription-style business models, on-demand video will power a self-selecting experience for their clientele. The client can browse through the trainer’s offering and choose the workout that appeals most to them.

1-on-1 live video call appointments

Thanks to 1-on-1 video call appointments, trainers can move consultations and assessments to a virtual format, allowing convenient, efficient check-ins that keep trainers and clients connected. This feature also enables 1-on-1 video coaching sessions. Remote sessions, where clients can receive personalized instructions and real-time feedback, will drive accountability and spark motivation. Video calls are hosted in-app, removing the need for another software, accessible from phone, tablet, and desktop.

Monetizing video training

While these new features will undoubtedly shake up online programs, they’ll also change the way trainers and studios structure their businesses and monetize services, providing a new source of revenue. As the industry continues to reel
